Anti-microbial, wicking and breathable seamless knit fabric
Shin Splint Relief: The Zensah Calf / Shin Splint Compression Sleeve was designed by professional athletic trainers to specifically target shin splints. The v-shaped chevron ribbing on the front of the sleeve provides the same relief as kinesiology tape without having to worry about being "taped up" by a trainer. The compression in each pair of calf sleeves helps to stabilize muscles and prevent injuries. Whether suffering from shin splints due to running, playing basketball, or just everyday activities, the Zensah Calf Sleeve helps to provide much needed relief.
Moisture Wicking and Ultimate Comfort: The calf / shin compression sleeve is moisture wicking, ensuring it stays dry and lightweight even during the toughest runs and workouts. The shin compression sleeve is made with innovative Zensah fabric, which is anti-odor and ultra-breathable. A seamless design means no irritating tags or seams to cause discomfort.
Improved Circulation and Faster Muscle Recovery: The compression in each calf sleeve helps to improve venous return, increasing blood flow and circulation. This leads to faster muscle recovery time, as muscles receive more of the oxygenated blood they need to recover. Runners and all athletes are able to take their training to the next level.
Calf Support and Injury Prevention: Micro-ribbing on the back of the calf sleeve provides calf support and helps to treat calf strains. Using the leg sleeves while running can reduce calf cramps and lessen fatigue. Pin-point compression provides targeted support where it is needed the most. The compression in the leg sleeve also helps to provide muscle stabilization, reducing micro tears and preventing injuries.
SOLD AS A SINGLE SLEEVE: The Zensah Calf / Shin Splint Compression Sleeve is sold a single sleeve - meaning one sleeve per purchase
Innovative training gear maker Zensah has developed a series of high-performance compression clothing using a
proprietary knitting process and materials. The company's bestselling dual action shin sleeve treats shin splints and
calf pulls, reducing the risk of injury and alleviating pain. The sleeve's front is designed to prevent shin splints by
incorporating a ribbed chevron pattern to help support muscles in the shin area. The deep groove ribbing also helps
increase blood circulation, getting oxygen to the muscles faster, while the back of the sleeve provides support of the
calf and Achilles tendon with micro ribbing and vertical line which mimic the calf muscles.
Chevron ribbing, when aligned with the middle-front of your shin, reduces risk of shin splints and associated pain.
Graduated compression features the greatest amount of compression in the part of the garment farthest away from the
heart, and the least amount compression in the part closest to the heart (for example, socks have more compression in
the ankle and less in the calf). With graduated compression, veins' cross sectional area is decreased and a pressure
gradient is created, which leads to physiological benefits including:
* Deoxygenated blood goes back to the heart faster as a result of improved venous return, thus enhancing blood
circulation throughout the body
* Faster recovery following strenuous exercise and improved performance, by aiding in the removal of blood lactate
* Reduced blood lactate concentration during maximal exercise bouts, allowing for an increased lactic threshold for
* Enhanced warm-up via increases in skin temperature
* Reduced muscle oscillation and vibration upon ground contact, providing stability to the muscle to help prevent
micro-trauma, making for a faster and easier recovery
* Reduced effects of delayed onset muscle soreness in the days following strenuous exercise through alleviating swelling
* Increased muscle support, which increases performance through improved muscle efficiency
* Improved leg power and vertical jump through enhanced proprioception
Studies have shown that those that have gained most by wearing compression are those transitioning from an inactive to
active lifestyle. Older populations have experienced great benefits from use of compression socks and sleeves. Amateur
athletes may see physiological improvements through using compression. About Zensah
Based on the Italian word "senza," meaning "to be without," Zensah was created to help athletes at all levels improve
their performance by utilizing unique, seamless sportswear designed to enhance performance and speed recovery. The
company's innovative seamless design consists of a breathable, moisture-wicking fabric that draws sweat away from the
body, allowing the garment and athlete to stay cool, dry, and light.
The Zensah Shin Splint/Calf Compression Sleeve provides dual action support and compression to the calf and shin area
for muscles support and pain relief. The chevron ribbing at front helps to alleviate shin splints. Graduated, pin-point
compression provides shin and calf support to reduce strain and sooth cramps. Zensah uses a special seamless knitting
process for a fabric that is soft, breathlable and wicks moisture.
The Shin Splint/Calf Compression Sleeve are also valuable recovery aids since the more oxygen the muscles receive, the
faster they recovery allowing athletes to push the envelope in their training. The Zensah Calf/Shin sleeve is ideal for
runners, cyclists and triathletes.
Sold in single units. Purchase two if you require a pair.
